Higgins Lake Cottage
Higgins Lake Cottage
We had a wonderful time at the Cottage. The cottage was exactly as listed and had many extra amenities and items for our use such as games, books, kids toys, etc. A fire pit has been added to the back/side yard that we were able to enjoy every night. We were there with 4 adults and a Toddler (2 years) and there was plenty of room in the front yard for the child and the dog to play. There are 2 stores within walking distance, a small beach area and dock just down the road, and the State Park was not far away either. We had only 1 small issue with the internet/cable not working, but it was resolved quickly by the owners. The house was clean and neat and we would stay there again. The owners were very flexible and accommodating - we booked pretty close to the time we wanted to vacation, and it was no problem and they allowed us to bring our dog.

This house is very nice and clean, and decorated attractively. It is very roomy and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen is very nice and has everything you might need. The weekly rate is very reasonable. Pets are allowed, so my son was able to bring their dog with them. Unfortunately, it was a very hot week, and with no air conditioning, it was kind of miserable (85 degrees) in the house. We had numerous fans that helped. (Some we bought, or brought with us). The cable TV service did not work most of the time, but the DVD player and VCR worked fine. We had a few problems while there...on our second day there, my 89 year old mother fell from the front porch step (no handrail) and has a hip fracture. I got a cut on the heel of my foot due to some metal trim on the floor of the laundry room. I covered the area with a rug, so no one else would get hurt. I have made Mr. Pratt aware of these problems. Mr. Lanier Pratt has been very kind and easy to communicate with. My son and his family did enjoy swimming in Higgins lake and canoeing down the Au Sable river.

Owner response: While we make every attempt to ensure a wonderful stay in our family house, there are some circumstances beyond our control. Our deck is very inviting and only requires one step (3 feet deep) to gain access to the main deck. It has been inspected by many including our insurance company and no one has expressed concern about the rise of two steps. We provide cable as an added benefit to our guest's stay. At any point that one of our renters informs us that the cable is not functioning we would make sure that was rectified immediately. If we are not informed there is an issue we are not able to attempt to correct the situation. By offering our family house to outside guests we understandably open ourselves to criticism and complaint. We are not a management company and hope that our guests understand that we are limited to correcting situations that are brought to our attention in a timely manner. We appreciate our past guests and we look forward to welcoming you to our family home in Higgins Lake, MI.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Thank you for viewing our family home. We have been visiting Michigan since the 1970's. Most of that time until 2004 was spent in the Grand Traverse Bay area. Since that time we have enjoyed many nights at Higgins Lake. We plan to continue experiencing all that Higgins Lake has to offer for years to come, but scheduling will required us to leave the house unused most of this summer. This is your opportunity to take advantage of our limited time this summer.
Why the Owner Chose Higgins Lake:
The house is very homey and has all the characteristics of a summer cottage including a light house design throughout. You're a long stones through from the lake where you wade out for almost 50 yards in the crystal clear water that is still only up to your waste.
